Portrait photography in the studio offers a level of control and creativity that is sometimes difficult to achieve in other locations. Working in the studio also brings with it a huge range of equipment that can be used, equipment that can be intimidating to someone new to the studio. People aren't sure whether to use constant lights or strobes, hot lights or cold lights, manual or TTL flash and then there are the huge range of attachments to shape the light. Is a softbox better than an umbrella? What about a beauty dish? Diffusers? Reflectors? Scrims? Gobos. It all sounds like a different language.
